Introduction
PATIENT
This Patient information provides operating instructions for the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit. Patient Mode allows
the patient to start and stop therapy, find leaks using the Seal Check™ feature, and attend to alerts and
alarms, but does not allow changes to therapy settings.
V.A.C.® (Vacuum Assisted Closure®) Therapy is a system that uses controlled continuous or intermittent
negative pressure (vacuum) to create an environment that promotes wound healing by:
• preparing the wound bed for closure
• reducing edema
• promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion
• removing exudate and infectious material
The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy System provides Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) and
Therapeutic Regulated Acute Care® (SensaT.R.A.C.®) for use on a variety of chronic and acute
wound types. This advanced wound healing therapy can be readily integrated into the healthcare
provider’s wound healing practice, helping to optimize patient care and manage costs. It is a
flexible therapy that, with appropriate precautions in place, may be used in both hospital and
community settings. This advanced wound healing technology is coupled with microprocessorcontrolled therapy units and 24-hour customer service and support.
V.A.C.® Therapy is prescribed by a physician or other licensed prescriber. As with
any prescription medical device, it is important to follow physician’s orders
and product instructions. Do not adjust settings or perform therapy application
without the express direction and/or supervision of a trained clinical caregiver.
Important product and therapy indications, contraindications, precautions
and safety information apply. Please consult your healthcare provider, the
accompanying V.A.C.® Therapy System Safety Information Sheet, Quick
Reference Guide (located in the pocket on the inside of the front flap of the
carrying case) and this User Manual prior to use.

Battery Charging Instructions
The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit comes with a rechargeable battery. The battery is not user accessible or
serviceable. The power supply has a two-part cord; one that plugs into an AC wall outlet and one that plugs
into the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit.
Use only the power supply provided with the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit. Using
any other power supply may damage the therapy unit.
If environmental conditions (specifically, low humidity) pose a risk of static
electricity, take care when handling the therapy unit while it is out of the
carrying case and plugged into an AC wall outlet. In rare instances, discharge
of static electricity when in contact with the therapy unit may cause the Touch
Screen to darken, or the therapy unit to reset or turn off. If therapy does not
restart by powering the unit off and then on, immediately contact KCI.
WARNING: According to clinician instructions, replace V.A.C.® Dressing with
alternate dressing if therapy is interrupted or off for more than two hours.
Power cords may present a tripping hazard. Ensure that all cords are out of
areas where people may walk.

Care And Cleaning
PATIENT
Standard Precautions
The following are the KCI recommended daily and weekly cleaning and infection control procedures for the ActiV.A.C.®
Therapy Unit.
Always follow Standard Precautions.
Standard Precautions are designed to reduce the risk of transmission of microorganisms from
both known and unknown sources of infection. These precautions can be applied to all patients,
regardless of their diagnosis or presumed infection status, and should be used when contact is
anticipated with blood and all body fluids. This also includes secretions and excretions (except
sweat) regardless of whether blood is visible or not, non-intact skin (i.e., open wounds) and
mucous membranes.
Waste Disposal
Discard all disposable items (all tubing, connectors, clamps, used canister, used dressings, etc.) in
accordance with local medical waste disposal regulations.
Cleaning the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit
Cleaning and disinfection of the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit includes wipedown of all hard surface
components. Follow your institutional procedures used for cleaning and disinfection of other hard
surface durable electronic medical equipment. The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit must be cleaned and
disinfected:
• If it becomes soiled during patient use.
• At least weekly.
Ensure that the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit and its power supply are not
connected to AC power when using cleaning fluids of any nature.
KCI recommends the following regarding cleaning and disinfecting KCI V.A.C.® Therapy devices:
• To help reduce risk of infection and contact with blood and body fluids, use personal
protective equipment (PPE) such as medical procedure gloves.
• Clean all organic material (visible soil or body secretions) from the therapy unit prior to
disinfection.
• Use hospital-grade cleaners and disinfectants.
• Do not immerse or saturate the therapy unit with fluids to avoid damage to the electronics in
the device.
• Do not use alcohol based solutions around the touch screen edges or near gasket and power
switches since alcohol based solutions will easily wick up into the screen and may cause
equipment malfunction.
30

Frequently Asked Questions
PATIENT
Q: How much does the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit weigh?
A: The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit weighs ~2.4 lbs (~1.08 kg) with an empty canister installed.
Q: How long does it take to charge the battery, and how long will a fully charged
battery last?
A: It takes approximately six hours to fully charge the battery. The ActiV.A.C.® battery can
maintain a charge up to 14 hours.
Q: The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit is sometimes noisy. Why is this and what can I do
about it?
A: Though the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit may be very quiet at times, it may also make noises to
enable the accurate delivery of negative pressure to the wound. Noise may seem louder at
night when surrounding noise level is greatly decreased. When a leak is present, unit noise
may increase and the unit will begin to alarm. Once the leak is fixed, the unit will no longer
alarm and become quieter. The unit may also make a burping sound occasionally.
Placing the therapy unit below the level of the wound may allow the system to work
more efficiently and more quietly. It is normal to hear on-again, off-again noise from the
ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit.
Q: What hapens if the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit alarms?
A: The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit is built with your safety in mind. The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit
has alarms that you can see and hear which will alert you to a potential problem. In most
situations, the reason for the alarm is easily fixed (see pages 18-27). This is something your
healthcare provider can explain in more detail, so you are comfortable with this alarm system.
Q: How do I know if the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit is working properly?
A: The Therapy Status Bar at the bottom of the touch screen displays specific therapy
information. The rotating icon, also found in the Therapy Status Bar, indicates the ActiV.A.C.®
Therapy Unit is applying negative pressure. The foam dressing will be collapsed indicating
negative pressure is being applied. Wound fluid may or may not be seen moving in the
tubing.
Q: What if I do not hear an audible click when installing a canister onto the ActiV.A.C.®
Therapy Unit?
A: An audible click should be heard when installing a new canister. Occasionally, you may not
hear an audible click. If the canister is properly installed, the canister cannot be removed by
gently pulling it directly away from the unit.
Q: What steps should I take before bathing?
A: Do not take the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit into the shower or tub. Turn therapy and power
off, and disconnect canister tubing from dressing tubing. The clear drape is waterproof; you
may wash or shower with dressings in place. Care should be taken not to roll the edges of
the drape while bathing. Refer to the Therapy Unit Disconnect chapter of this manual
(page 14) for more information.
Q: Is the ActiV.A.C.® Canister compatible with all V.A.C.® Therapy Units?
A: No, the 300 mL canister is to be used only with the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit and InfoV.A.C.®
Therapy Unit.
32
Q: When should additional SensaT.R.A.C.® Dressings and ActiV.A.C.® Canisters be
ordered?
A: Order additional supplies when you have only one case of dressings OR five canisters left.
Orders may be placed by calling KCI at least 3-5 business days before the supplies are
needed.
Q: Are there any recommendations to note when traveling?
A: Consult your healthcare provider prior to traveling to determine if it is safe for you to
travel. Do not travel without first obtaining medical approval and a complete
understanding of all of the risks that may pertain to your medical condition as well
as to V.A.C®. Therapy. Risk of bleeding during travel can have serious and potentially fatal
consequences.
Once medical approval is obtained, it is recommended that you have the following items with
you during travel:
• Your prescription for V.A.C.® Therapy, which includes therapy settings and dressing
supplies.
• Enough V.A.C.® System components (such as foam, drape, tubing and canisters) for
dressing and canister changes at the recommended time intervals or as needed.
• Dressing changes should be performed no less than three times a week.
• Canisters should be changed when full or at least once a week.
• An alternate dressing recommended by your health care practioner to be used in the
event V.A.C.® Therapy needs to be discontinued.
• A fully charged therapy unit and power cord.
• The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit User Manual and QRG.
WARNING: According to clinician instructions, replace V.A.C.® Dressing with
alternate dressing if therapy is interrupted or off for more than two hours.
33
PATIENT
Q: What languages are available in the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit?
A: The therapy unit is pre-programmed with the following languages: English, German, Spanish,

alternate dressing if therapy is interrupted or off for more than two hours.
If the area needing imaging is under the foam dressing, there is a possibility of
shadow casting. The V.A.C.® GranuFoam™ Bridge Dressing contains additional
synthetic materials which may pose a risk during HBO Therapy. Other V.A.C.®
Dressings are compatible with all imaging modalities. The decision whether or
not to keep the V.A.C.® Dressing in place should be made by the radiologist,
radiology technician and/or your wound care practitioner.

Introduction
This Clinician information provides operating instructions for the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit to the healthcare
professional. Many features described are not available in Patient Mode. Patient Mode allows the patient to
start and stop therapy, find leaks using the Seal Check™ feature, and attend to alerts and alarms, but does not
allow changes to therapy settings.
V.A.C.® (Vacuum Assisted Closure®) Therapy is a system that uses controlled continuous or intermittent
negative pressure (vacuum) to create an environment that promotes wound healing by:
• preparing the wound bed for closure
• reducing edema
• promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion
• removing exudate and infectious material
CLINICIAN
The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy System provides Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) and
Therapeutic Regulated Acute Care® (SensaT.R.A.C.®) for use on a variety of chronic and acute
wound types. This advanced wound healing therapy can be readily integrated into the healthcare
provider’s wound healing practice, helping to optimize patient care and manage costs. It is a
flexible therapy that, with appropriate precautions in place, may be used in both hospital and
community settings. This advanced wound healing technology is coupled with microprocessorcontrolled therapy units and 24-hour customer service and support.

Options available from this screen:
• Seal Check™ Leak Detector - Use to view the integrity of the V.A.C.®
Dressing and find any leaks.
• Log Tool - Use to record canister change or the number of foam
pieces used during a dressing change.
Seal Check™ Leak Detector
The Seal Check™ feature is used to help find negative pressure leaks and may be accessed three different
ways:
• When therapy is started from the Clinician Mode home screen.
• When the Seal Check™ button is pressed from the Therapy screen.
• When the Seal Check™ button is pressed on the Leak Alarm screen after the ActiV.A.C.®
Therapy Unit detects a possible leak.
Patients only have access to the Seal Check™ feature through the Leak Alarm
screen when the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit detects a possible leak.
How to Use the Seal Check™ Leak Detector When Starting Therapy
On/Off
Press the Therapy On/Off button located on the Clinician Mode home screen to immediately
display the Therapy Start screen.
Orange bar graph indicates
a significant leak.
Green bar graph indicates that

Press to turn the

The Seal Check™ Leak Detector uses an audible tone and bar graph to assist in finding leaks.
The frequency of the audible tone and the height of the bar graph will reflect the leak rate. The
audible tone slows down and the bar graph decreases in height as the leak is found.
During initial dressing draw down, the bar graph should turn orange and then
return to green if there are no significant leaks.
Most leaks occur:
• where the drape meets the skin.
CLINICIAN
• where the SensaT.R.A.C.® Pad is attached to the drape.
• at tubing connections.
• when the canister is not securely connected to the therapy unit.
47
Finding the Leak Using the Seal Check™ Leak Detector
1. Ensure the connector between dressing tubing and canister tubing is properly locked.
2. Ensure the canister is securely installed on the therapy unit. If the canister is properly
installed, it cannot be removed by gently pulling it directly away from the unit.
3. While therapy is on and using light pressure, move your hand and fingers slowly around the
edges of the drape and SensaT.R.A.C.® Pad. The bar graph will lower and the frequency of
the audible tone (if Seal Audio is on) will decrease when the leak is found.
4. Refer to the Application Instructions provided with V.A.C.® Dressings for information on
using excess V.A.C.® Drape material to seal the leak area.

5. When finished press Exit to return to the Clinician Mode home screen.

Care And Cleaning
Standard Precautions
The following are the KCI recommended daily and weekly cleaning and infection control procedures for the ActiV.A.C.®
Therapy Unit.
Always follow Standard Precautions.
Standard Precautions are designed to reduce the risk of transmission of microorganisms from
both known and unknown sources of infection. These precautions can be applied to all patients,
regardless of their diagnosis or presumed infection status, and should be used when contact is
anticipated with blood and all body fluids. This also includes secretions and excretions (except
sweat) regardless of whether blood is visible or not, non-intact skin (i.e., open wounds) and
mucous membranes.
Waste Disposal
Discard all disposable items (all tubing, connectors, clamps, used canister, used dressings, etc.) in
accordance with local medical waste disposal regulations.
Cleaning the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit
Cleaning and disinfection of the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit includes wipedown of all hard surface
components. Follow your institutional procedures used for cleaning and disinfection of other hard
surface durable electronic medical equipment. The ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit must be cleaned and
disinfected:
• If it becomes soiled during patient use.
• At least weekly.
Ensure that the ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit and its power supply are not
connected to AC power when using cleaning fluids of any nature.
KCI recommends the following regarding cleaning and disinfecting KCI V.A.C.® Therapy devices:
• To help reduce risk of infection and contact with blood and body fluids, use personal
protective equipment (PPE) such as medical procedure gloves.
• Clean all organic material (visible soil or body secretions) from the therapy unit prior to
disinfection.
• Do not immerse or saturate the therapy unit with fluids to avoid damage to the electronics in
the device.
• Do not use alcohol based solutions around the touch screen edges or near gasket and power
switches since alcohol based solutions will easily wick up into the screen and may cause
equipment malfunction.
57
CLINICIAN
• Use hospital-grade cleaners and disinfectants.
Cleaning the Touch Screen
1. Select the Screen Guard button on the Home screen (pg. 38) to activate Screen Guard.
Lock button icon will close. The next screen displayed will be the screen guard
screen.
2. Use a soft, non-abrasive cloth to gently clean the touch screen.
Do not use any liquid to clean the touch screen.
Do not use excessive force to clean the touch screen. Pressing too hard may
cause damage.

3. To unlock the touch screen, select the 1 button, then the 2 button on the Screen Guard
screen to return to the Home screen.
